Caller ID or something equivalent

Setting: the technological and societal equivalent of the Seattle area in Summer 1991.

Googled: caller ID widespread 90s, caller ID, caller ID widespread, caller ID in 1991 (among others)

Question: A ten year old girl and her brother are at home. Her brother is deaf, she can hear but she's not paying attention. The phone is ringing. I need him to know that the phone has rung and if possible, an idea of who would have called so he can give her the information. I know that there are lights that can be attached to ringing phones, but there was no caller ID until 1995 or so, right?

Thanks in advance.


ETA: Durp, Answering machine. I'll use that. Thanks!
